A few hours before the Award ceremony, Davido, in an interview with Billboard’s Tetris Kelly at the Pre-Grammy show, said he would go into a wild celebration if he clinches the award for the Best African Music Performance category.
Davido was nominated in all 3 of these Categories 👇
👉 “Feel” was nominated for the Best Global Music Performance category
👉 “Timeless” was nominated for the Album of the Year category
👉 “Unavailable” was nominated for the Best African Music Performance category.
Unfortunately, he was unable to win any of the nominations.
South African Rapper Tyla won ahead of Davido
However, female South African rapper, Tyla won the Best African Music Performance Award for her song “Water“.
Davido had stated, “I am just happy that we all get to shine. What if there was no (African) category? So, at the end of the day, we should all be happy that we have this category, something to call our own. Whoever wins, it’s okay. If I win, we are celebrating. We go crazy.”
He added that the African Music Category at the premier global music award was long overdue.
